From Triumph:

NEWNAN, Georgia – May 10,, 2007 – Triumph Motorcycles (America) Ltd., is pleased to announce the creation of the ultimate Street-Fighting Machine, the Special Edition Speed Triple 1050.

Triumph has equipped the mean and nasty Jet Black Speed Triple 1050 with a special package of must-have accessories to create the ultimate street-fighter at a very special price. The Special Edition Speed Triple 1050 comes complete with the race-styled Arrow 3 into 1 Exhaust System, 5 different carbon fiber accessories, black seat cowl and belly pan and anodized axle covers.

Priced at only $11,999, the Special Edition Speed Triple 1050 is an amazing value representing savings of almost $1,000 compared to the price of the separate components.

Triumph is only producing 50 of these amazing bikes, and they are expected to sell-out quickly. Customers should contact their local dealer immediately to lock-in one of these hot bikes.

The bikes will be delivered to dealers in June.

Special Edition Speed Triple 1050 Included Accessories:

* Arrow 3 into 1 Exhaust System
* Carbon Fiber Flyscreen

Ho hum, I wouldn't keep the flyscreen, bellypan, axle cover, or cover. I bet that adds up to $1000. Nice though for those who want all that stuff. Triumph is starting to get it. Now if all the bodywork was CF and so magnesium....... :horse:

You could build one yourself so there isn't anything unique about the "limited edition". If you wanted that exact combination of accessories I guess it is a good deal. I would rather see a high performance version with forged wheels, Ohlins suspension, upgraded brakes, etc.

BORING!

Like always, just a collection of crap from their catalog. Not even a special color, easy to build yourself - WITH MORE POWER AND BETTER SUSPENSION.

I just can't get over it that companies never pay attention to their customers' opinions and come up with these stupid ideas.

Jesus! All they need to do is to log on here or triumphrat and make freaking notes!

Maybe those geniuses at Triumph should spend they're afternoon tea break on this site. They may learn a few things.

That all depends, if they added the accessories and didn't do anything to address the big ass bracket where the stock exhaust used to be, I'd think that would be pretty lame. I'm not a big fan of 3 into 1 pipes because the tail doesn't look clean.

If they cleaned that all up that might be a different story.

But I bet they'll sell out completely. And as long as they do, they'll think they're on the right track. There are plenty of folks out there that are more interested in cosmetic imagery rather than functional upgrades like better suspension bits.

I can't believe Triumph is passing this off as a limited edition. Charging $2k more for it, then telling us we'll save $1k buy buying it? I can think of better things to buy with 2 G's. How about some lighter wheels? :shocker:

I should note that I was in no way endorsing this motorcycle, just bringing it to your attention! :)

How about they make an S edition? Maybe Triumph just figures owners usually revel in customizing their Triumph anyway so why bother making an S or R model?
